I guess you've seen this before
Here is another interesting connection:
NLP is in the top 10 discredited interventions, especially for substance abuse
Clinician's Guide to Evidence-based Practices (2008)
John C. Norcross, Thomas P. Hogan, Gerald P. Koocher
Judging by the poll on FT2, he is also in the top 10 discredited treatments for WP abuse.
NLP is probably discredited because NLP was developed via the abuse of alcohol and cocaine by its main developers back in the 70s and 80s.
FT2 is discredited partly because he was given status and power via WP abuse, and partly because of continued abuse.
That kind of figures!
